Giving at UBC
As a church, we have a duty to be good stewards of people’s gifts, and we strive consistently to make Godly, responsible and wise use of the funds entrusted to us. Our monetary gifts further our ability to share with our community and world the message of God’s perfect gift of Christ and His transforming love.

Your gift helps us live out our vision to see the power of God unleashed in our lives, our church, our community and our world so that every tongue, tribe, and nation may come to know and proclaim the saving work of Jesus Christ.
Giving as a Form of Worship
At UBC we believe how we spend our money is a reflection of what is most important to us. For that reason, we try to place an appropriate emphasis on tithing and proportionate giving. 1 Cor. 16:2 admonishes us to give “as God has prospered” us. We are encouraged to give a discernible percentage of our income for the work of the church. This reflects our joyful thanksgiving for the blessings and generosity of God in our lives. The biblical norm is 10%. Whether we give 10%, 5% or 2%, the important thing in a theology of proportionate giving is to commit to tithing starting at a level that is appropriate to our circumstances. We believe it’s not only a matter of obedience to Scripture but even a powerful form of worship. We also believe our giving is a discipleship gauge, reflecting where God stacks up in our priorities, and that financial discipleship is as important as relational discipleship.
